“The Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure …”
“ For where thy treasure is,
there is thy heart also.”
“Sell what you possess and give alms.
Make for yourselves purses which do not grow old,
a treasure unfailing in Heaven,
where neither thief draws near,
nor moth destroys.”
“Thy will be done
on earth as it is
“I want to advise you and remind you, what His will is.
Do not fear that it means He will give you riches,
or delights, or honours, or all these earthly things.
His love for you is not that small!
and He esteems highly what you give Him.
He wants to repay you well,
for He gives you His Kingdom
while you are still on earth …
See … what He gave to the One He loved most.
By that we understand what His will is.
For these are His gifts in this world.”
St Teresa of Avila (1515-1582)
Doctor of Prayer of the Church
“By giving yourself to God,
you not only receive Himself in exchange
but, eternal life as well!”
St Francis de Sales (1567-1622)
“Where is the heart that loves?
On the thing it loves.
Therefore, where our love is,
there our heart is held captive.
It cannot leave it;
it cannot be lifted higher,
it cannot go either to the right or the left;
see, it is fixed.
Where the miser’s treasure is,
there is his heart
and where our heart is,
there is our treasure.”
